Crestview is a home rule-class city in Campbell County, Kentucky, in the United States. The population was 475 at the 2010 census.[2]


The city of Crestview was founded as Vet Village in 1948 by veterans of World War II. The first mayor, William Toner, was a veteran who – along with Michael Guidugli, Harold Shingshang, Edward Storer and Robert Munninghoff – broke ground as the first residents of the tiny city. Located less than 10 miles (16 km) from downtown Cincinnati, Ohio., this small piece of farmland quickly became a suburb for these young soldiers and their families. In 1950, the residents decide to rename the city through a contest, and the name Crestview was selected.
